LEGO The Avengers Quinjet City Chase Review

Marvel’s ‘Avengers Age of Ultron’ was released in cinemas April 24th and LEGO celebrated by bringing out a fantastic new line of playsets, we were lucky enough to be sent The Avengers Quinjet City Chase set (76032) rrp £69.99.

This latest LEGO delivery was met with bubbling enthusiasm by both the boys, they are big super heroes fans so seeing all their favourite characters in LEGO form is beyond exciting!!!  They were quick to start building, it’s an 8-14 age set so eldest who is 7 (almost 8) took the lead and had his younger brother (who is 6) bring him the pieces he needed.  He did a sterling job with only a little help from daddy for the more complicated parts, I think with patience he could have completed it on his own but he was eager to see the finished jet.

The end result was very impressive plus the jet itself is jam packed with features, it makes LEGO adventures that much more enjoyable.  My eldest was pointing out some of his favourite aspects, like the shooting stud guns:

The storage area (for weapons and maybe a superhero snack?):

And the bike section (which you can open so you can literally ride straight into battle!):  

I think the jet is very realistic and compares well with the one in the film, especially the foldable wings.

Once built it seemed very sturdy (although they never dropped it!), usually I like to review the sets quickly as pieces can be mislaid or the boys seem to destroy the vehicles through heavy handed play!  But fortunately this jet has been played with lots and stayed very much intact; they have used the rope to pull along all kinds of different things, vehicles, figures and random toys in the playroom and the jet has coped admirably being dragged along.

The boys liked having an exploding truck and seemed to be able to get it back together quickly to keep repeating the process!  This set has plenty to do for extended fun; its ideal for keeping children occupied for long periods and really sparks their imaginations.

I love the detailing on the figures and the addition of the super jumper is a nice touch!  I think the set is well worth the money as its offers extended play, well thought out features and a chance to get your hands on no less than 5 minifigures with assorted accessories: Vision, Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man MK43 and Ultimate Ultron.
